SINS PAST PART 2 The second part of a Spider-Man arc that had people talking for years. Featuring art by new series regular Mike Deodato- one more reason not to miss a single issue!

    The writing carries this issue, and its a good thing that Straczynskis writing is so strong, as Deodato Jr is terribly unsuited to this comic. This isnt bad by any means, and Im sure that my opinion of the art isnt a common one, so I wont let it affect my score. Straczynskis taking Spider-Man in an interesting direction, and the art doesnt detract from thattoo much. Read Full Review

    Fresh, intriguing, and well-drawn, this new direction has the potential to be as memorable and thrilling as JMS first Morlun arc, which he hasnt equalled since. A couple of logic flaws in the plot mechanics aside, such a potentially controversial storyline probably couldnt have been handled much better. Read Full Review

    The lumpy figure work that Spider-Man suddenly gains when he puts on the spandex has me wishing Mike Deodato Jr. would crack open a book on the human form, but I have to also give him full marks for a wonderful one-page shot of a sideways Spider-Man racing toward the reader, and the big explosion panel is also pretty solid. I also have to give the art full credit for its work on the out-of-costume moments, as there's a great quiet moment between Peter and Mary Jane. Still, the cover image is a bit off-putting, as Spider-Man looks like he's been disfigured by his attackers. Read Full Review

    Lets just hope this doesnt turn into something as awful as the whole clone affair! If it does, I might just have to tear up my Spiderman fan club ID Read Full Review

    Another interesting twist the Sins Past storyline, however it appears that this entire arc could easily fall into boring and pointless ground. The issue is solid enough and does further the overall plot, however there really isnt anything that would attract the attention of a non-Spidey fan. Read Full Review
